What Does Romans 11:28 Mean?
By David J. Stewart | October 2015
Romans 11:28-29, “As concerning the gospel, they are enemies for your sakes: but as touching the election, they are beloved for the fathers' sakes. For the gifts and calling of God are without repentance.”
There is a remnant of believing (born again) Jews today, scattered around the world. The present-day nation of Israel is an Illuminati hoax, put there by evil men, not a holy God. The promises of God concerning Israel only apply to saved Jews, and God has grafted in believing Gentiles as well. The promises of God have ALWAYS followed a line of faith throughout history . . .
Romans 11:4:-7,“But what saith the answer of God unto him? I have reserved to myself seven thousand men, who have not bowed the knee to the image of Baal. Even so then at this present time also there is a remnant according to the election of grace. And if by grace, then is it no more of works: otherwise grace is no more grace. But if it be of works, then is it no more grace: otherwise work is no more work. What then? Israel hath not obtained that which he seeketh for; but the election hath obtained it, and the rest were blinded.”
By “election,” the Bible does NOT mean God chooses who will be saved; but rather, in His foreknowledge God predestinates those whom He knows will be saved of their own free will. Romans 8:29: “For whom he did foreknow, he also did predestinate to be conformed to the image of his Son, that he might be the firstborn among many brethren.” No one is predestination to salvation; but rather, to be formed into Christ's image. Israel is the enemy of the Gospel, but beloved still because of God's promises. Please understand that God is NOT a debtor to man, nor to the Jews, nor to Israel, but to HIS PROMISES! God's future promises concerning Israel are all CONDITIONAL, requiring salvation and obedience in order to receive the blessing . . .
Romans 11:25-32, “For I would not, brethren, that ye should be ignorant of this mystery, lest ye should be wise in your own conceits; that blindness in part is happened to Israel, until the fulness of the Gentiles be come in. And so all Israel shall be saved: as it is written, There shall come out of Sion the Deliverer, and shall turn away ungodliness from Jacob: For this is my covenant unto them, when I shall take away their sins. As concerning the gospel, they are enemies for your sakes: but as touching the election, they are beloved for the fathers' sakes. For the gifts and calling of God are without repentance. For as ye in times past have not believed God, yet have now obtained mercy through their unbelief: Even so have these also now not believed, that through your mercy they also may obtain mercy. For God hath concluded them all in unbelief, that he might have mercy upon all.”
The saying “For the gifts and callings of God are without repentance,” refers to the truth that God does not change His mind concerning His promises. The promises that God made to Abraham, Isaac and Jacob still hold true today, but they are conditional. Unsaved Jews go to Hell. Christians today don't owe unsaved Jews anything. God does want us to witness to them with the Gospel, having respect for the fact that God's law, the prophets, the Bible and the Messiah all came through Israel. We ought to witness to the Jews, since it was through their fall that we are blessed to receive the Gospel.
However, wicked Jews, and even many crypto-Jews (Khazarian Russian Gentiles who claim to be Jews for personal gain), claim that Jews are “The Master Race” and the world should bow before them. God is no respecter of persons (Romans 2:11; Romans 10:12). The Jews are NOT some Master Race destined to rule mankind. That's bullonga!!! Saved Jews and Gentiles alike will rule with Jesus Christ during His millennial Kingdom on earth. Revelation 20:6, “Blessed and holy is he that hath part in the first resurrection: on such the second death hath no power, but they shall be priests of God and of Christ, and shall reign with him a thousand years.” I've heard some preachers say that the First Resurrection happens at the Second Coming, but I disagree. I believe Revelation 20:6 refers to the Pretribulation Rapture, when the saints are resurrected with glorified and incorruptible bodies (1st Corinthians 15:51-58).
Notice in the following Scripture WHO the Jewish remnant will be when the Lord returns at His Second Coming. Revelation 12:17, “And the dragon was wroth with the woman, and went to make war with the remnant of her seed, which keep the commandments of God, and have the testimony of Jesus Christ.” The “remnant” of Israel's seed will keep God's Commandments and be born-again Christians (have the testimony of Jesus Christ). There is no ungodly, blasphemous, Christ-rejecting remnant of Jews today, nor has there ever been, nor will there ever be. All Christ-rejecting Jews go straight to burn in Hell, sadly.
Many churches, including Baptists, gullibly support wicked Israel, which is a cruel Illuminati hoax in Palestine today, being used to instigate World War III between Jews and Arabs. Hosea 3:4-5 teaches that Israel will not be restored until a remnant of Israel repent toward God and place their faith solely in the true Messiah, Jesus Christ!!! This will not happen until the end of the Tribulation period, and then Christ Second Coming happens, when He sets up His millennial Kingdom for Jerusalem.
